During our last two days in Malaysia, we opted to go North and do a quick stop over in Georgetown, the capital of Penang, a World UNESCO Heritage Site.
We took a sleeper train and arrived really early in Butterworth where in we had to wait for a ferry that would cross us to Georgetown.
Penang proved to be another highlight of this Malaysian trip and it was a pity that we didnt have enough days to explore the town. It has this distinct charm that I haven't experience before in Southeast Asia. I'd love to spend a week here knowing that it can recharge my creative juice.
The street scene is a great find for photography enthusiasts. It is very vibrant and is just full of that local flavor.
We even stumbled upon a Camera Museum that is a great treat for photographers.
Too bad that we had to cut the stopover short as our bus heading back to Kuala Lumpur had to leave in the afternoon. But again, I'd say that this overnight side trip was well worth it. Hopefully, I'll get the chance again to spend more time in Penang. Soon.
